In December 2015, the US Department of State sponsored a visiting delegation from The People’s Republic of China on the premier exchange program called the International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP). There were 3 international leaders who met with various professional organizations while in the Greater Cincinnati region to discuss Disability Issues.
In addition, Jeffrey Walkup, Cincinnati Ambassador for Greater Cincinnati World Affairs Council, spent one of the professional days for the visitors driving them to and from appointments.
Just this past March, while Jeff was visiting Thailand, he reconnected with one of the Chinese visitors, Ms. Jenny Xiaomeng Qi, a lawyer in Beijing. She had enjoyed her visit to Cincinnati and appreciated the way the Greater Cincinnati World Affairs Council had connected their group with so many different volunteers.
